Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese

Dinner Tonight: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac & Cheese

For Breakfast on this cold March morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy
Life Whole Grain Bread, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well they say if March comes in like a Lion it will go out like Lamb. So we got the Lion part covered so now we''l wait and see if it goes out like a Lamb! Mid 20's this morning with very light snow flurries and still windy out. But they say by Sunday it will be 60 degrees again, hope they have it right! Did some house cleaning today and cleaned up around the outside a bit. I didn’t go see Dad today, he had some testing and 2 therapy sessions today. For my dinner tonight I prepared Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac & Cheese.

I picked up the Ocean Perch at Meijer yesterday. Really love the Meijer Seafood Department. Good
selection, always fresh and some good items on sale. To prepare them I preheated a medium size skillet, that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added Extra Virgin Olive, on medium heat. Rinsed the Perch with cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Lightly seasoned them with the McCormick Sea Salt. I then put them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag and added Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri, shaking the bag then until the Perch Fillets were coated. Added the Fillets to the heated skillet and fried them for 6 minutes. 3 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac
Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Ocean Perch

Ocean perch is mild tasting yet a bit sweet, with a moderately firm texture. The meat is lean, moist and flaky. Large ocean perch develop a coarse texture. Deep-skinned ocean perch with the fat line removed has the most delicate flavor. The flesh is white, though not as light as cod, and it turns opaque white when cooked.Whole fish may have bulging eyes and distended air bladders, which is a result of being brought up from great depths, not an indication of poor quality.
